I have always been a book worm. From Harry Potter to Dolly Parton’s Autobiography, I’ll read just about anything. I intended on purchasing a book about each garden that we visited while on The Grand Tour so that when I returned, I would be able to continue this educational experience. Although I came home a few gardens short, I managed to get my hands on quite a few while I was abroad. At the end of this trip, we had a paper plate ceremony. The paper plate awarded to me was titled “most likely to buy a new suitcase because she bought the entire Trinity Library in Ireland”. I am somewhat embarrassed to say the total book count came to be around 12 (that’s almost a book a day). It is true that I had to purchase a new suitcase in order to transport this “library” back home.
